Vapiano - Italian food organized by Germans

 

It is a dream combination. Italian food, created in an incredibly efficient way. This is what Vapiano is all about. There is no messing about wasting time trying to work out who pays what, as every person is given a card, that they then "charge" food and drinks to at a selection of various stations. Your food is made to order at one of each station whilst you watch (pasta, antipasti), or just collect them (dessert or drinks), or order and get a buzzer (Pizza). It works out perfectly. Each person gets what they want, charged to them and can edit their dish to their particular liking - no basil, no issue, no garlic, no problem. Even better, you can get it to go (their pasta makes a very good breakfast), and their takeaway boxes are perfectly lunch sized Tupperware. In fact, this is possibly one of my favourite casual places to go. It is great place to meet up with old friends, as the lack of service means no-one really cares if you sit there for four hours, as I did last Tuesday.
Pasta, my personal favourite from Vapiano, is from a list, divided into four different price categories and can be combined with any of their six fresh made pasta. Antipasti include things like beef carrpacio or bruschetta.

On a bit of a health kick, I decided to avoid my usual Tagliatelle with Carbonara, and instead went for Spelt Fusilli with Tomato, Sausage and Figs, which I managed to forget to take photos of. It was satisfying, spicy and a gorgeous combination. The fact that I could order Spelt and thus not feel guilty about pasta consumption made it all the better. The bill came to £12-ish pounds, for the pasta and an Arizona Ice Tea.
